Our innovative technicians have the experience to fix brake lines, brake rotors, brake pads, calipers, and much more. We’ll correctly diagnose your general brake condition and carry out all repairs. Bad brakes exhibit warning signs for impending brake maintenance. If your brake pedal presses too quickly, also called “spongy” brakes,” then this might be a sign of too much air in the hydraulic brake lines.

We’ve got most tire sizes in stock and can order almost any size or brand tire you need. If you want it in a hurry, and it is available, we’ll install them while you wait. Also, we perform tire services that will allow you to get the longest possible life from your tire purchase.

A fully functioning brake system is crucial to your safety, the safety of your passengers, and other drivers’ safety on the road. Your vehicle’s brake system involves highly engineered parts and precise movements that stop your car by converting kinetic energy into thermal energy. When you press down on the brake pedal, the master cylinder pressurizes a hydraulic brake system leading to each of the vehicle’s wheels, where brake pads or shoes press against a disc or drum and create the necessary friction needed to slow the car to a complete stop. Over time, this friction and heat can wear down the brake shoes, brake pads, calipers, brake rotors, and other braking components. While the details comprising each brake system may vary, the warning signs for impending brake repairs are the same.

Bad brakes display warning signs for impending brake maintenance. For example, if your brakes squeal or grind when in use, your brake pads may be worn and require replacements. If your vehicle pulls to one side when braking, then this may point to worn brakes, a malfunctioning caliper, or low brake fluid in the brake lines. If your brake pedal presses down too easily—also known as “spongy” brakes—then this may be an indication of too much air in the hydraulic brake lines. Your vehicle’s electronic diagnostic system will sometimes alert you to a potential brake issue by a service indicator light on the dashboard. While these are only some of the most common signs of potential problems with your vehicle’s brake system, noticing these signs of faulty brakes and seeking out a brake service can save you money down the line. Our staff is trained in maintaining and servicing front and rear brake systems and all accompanying brake system components like brake pads, brake shoes, parking brakes, rotors, drums, and hydraulic systems. If you experience any of the above signs or symptoms of bad brakes, like unusual squealing or grinding noises, then contact us online or call us today to have your brakes inspected immediately.

In conjunction with the brake pads, your brake system’s rotors help bring your vehicle to a complete stop. Commonly made of cast iron, rotors are discs that mount to the wheel hub. When you press the brake pedal, the brake pads compress against the rotors and slow your wheels. Rotor design may vary from vehicle to vehicle and from brake system to brake system. Variations in design help dissipate the heat created between the brake pads and the rotors when you slow your vehicle. Disc brake systems can account for heat dissipation in two ways: either the rotors will have a ventilated design, or the brake pads will contain a slot on the surface. These vents and slots provide passages, so air circulation can effectively cool the rotor. Proper heat dissipation is significant for prolonging the life of your rotors. Drivers are encouraged to watch their brake rotors and seek rotor repairs or rotor replacements when necessary.

Brake pads and rotors work together to stop your vehicle and share similar wear patterns. As brake pads compress against the rotor to stop the car, the friction required to slow your wheels creates a large amount of heat that, if not properly dissipated, can wear down your brake pads and rotors. A vibrating brake pedal is one indication that your rotors are damaged and need to be replaced. When a rotor is removed from the brake assembly, the rotor will be inspected for cracks and other damage incurred during routine operation. Periodic inspections of rotors will prolong rotor repairs and replacements while ensuring your brake system continues operating as expected. Seeking brake rotor replacements within the service intervals indicated by your owner’s manual, or as wear and tear dictates, is an integral part of brake maintenance. If you wonder if a rotor replacement is right for your vehicle, please consult with a member of our service staff today.
